So the hike was brutal. Met up at BYU at 11pm, other than one guide (ian) i was the only non-student. awesome. The first thousand feet was through scrub-brush, then we hit snow. then it got really steep. no switchbacks. it was like tip-toeing up a ladder(sore calves). I was definitely the weak-link, always the last one to the break point. Lucky for me sketchy snow conditions shut down everyone and no one made it to the summit.
Summary: made it up 4,000 feet, needed 2,000 more so no summit. brutal but glad i did it.
